The travel

In May and June 2018, Les ombres portées headed to South Korea.

The company was invited to perform its show Les Somnambules during 6 performances and it was the occasion to celebrate the 100th performance.
A tour was organized at the Uijeongbu Music Theatre Festival and the Gwangmyeong Theatre, both in the Seoul great suburb.

Meetings and exchanges with the audience took place at the end of each performance. The company held a two-day shadow theatre workshop with Korean artists, actors, musicians, scenic designers, etc.

This tour was also the occasion to celebrate the 100th performance of the show.

During this trip, the company has also discovered different Korean arts (music, pansori, talchum, calligraphy, etc.).

The tour was supported by the Institut Français of Paris and the City Council of Paris.
